SPACE — NASA on Tuesday posted a picture on Facebook of two of Pluto’s moons. 

One of the moons, Hydra, is shaped like Michigan, NASA said on Facebook.  Nix, the other moon, is shaped like a jelly bean.

Of Pluto’s five moons, Hydra is the farthest away, according to NASA.

Last week, NASA released new, close-up photos of its surface courtesy of the New Horizons spacecraft.
